The engineering tailored behind the heating and air-conditioning industry has progressed slowly since the inception of HVAC in the early 1900s. There have been many attempts to replace traditional HVAC with new concepts, but all have proved elusive to provide sufficient means for utility heating and cooling purposes. Currently, there are scientific undertakings to create a real-world impact on the environment directed toward changing the current HVAC technology.
The novelty of the outlined details an innovation that produces hot and cold air for residential and commercial utility applications. Initial research observations suggest scalability to any size imaginable with efficiencies that are comparable or could even surpass traditional heating and air conditioning units’ energy ratings.
The proposed innovation, weighing 2/3 less than conventional HVAC systems, can be an economically more intelligent solution for consumers leading into the future. A fully operating standard heating and cooling system, such as the window air-conditioner described in this proposal, will only function at around 200 watts. By accomplishing this, it would allow the innovation to be one of the most eco-friendly systems available on the market. These efficient low-wattage capabilities will eventually lead to research that extends into powering the system with alternative methods such as solar panels.
This innovation outlines concepts for a novel system with a near frictionless spin chamber that spins a self-contained interior vortex in one direction. In contrast, the spin chamber itself rotates mechanically in the opposite direction. Once energy efficiency has desired effects on the system’s power consumption, the market appeal will become more realistic.
The Value Proposition of the Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System spans all social and economic statuses. Inexpensive indoor quality heating and cooling will become possible due to the cost-effective nature of the presented engineering feat’s creative design and structured layout. Consumers’ critical benefits would be cost-effectiveness, energy-saving probabilities, efficiency, practical use, and reasonable maintenance with sustainability.
An eco-friendly solution in combination with optimal heating and cooling will create new trains of thought for contributing to and pursuing the goal of net zero. The Key Differentiators that this proposal claims are distinct novel approaches and design techniques that could provide USA Societal Value by pivoting away from traditional non-economic HVAC systems. American Ingenuity brought forth with the innovation will also coincide with American Manufacturing and Job Creation.
The Ducted Vortex system will venture into an exciting arena of creative development and design with research pointing toward energy-efficient utility applications that could change how we live and work.
This innovation is truly a unique project created in and of itself with forethought that is the cornerstone of another chapter of energy conservation. Not only is this system an alternative source for heating and cooling, but it is also a potential market disruptor that will possibly challenge the HVAC industry and showcase technology concepts that are fifty years ahead of time. With proper funding a novel innovation will begin to take pronounced form in an organized fashion.
The time is now to begin to reverse the previous damage(s) done by an HVAC industry that has not changed its business practices in over a century. Ducted Vortex, Inc. is seeking a $1,000,000 initial round of funding to create market-ready versions of prototypes to explore a new chapter of energy conservation and net-zero compliance directed specifically in the HVAC sector. Our mission is to generate sustainable renewable energy by protecting the environment through creative engineering. To advance to the next stage of scientific progression, funding is needed to produce working prototypes that will intrigue investors and consumers alike.
We believe that the Ducted Vortex Heating & Cooling System could be the most efficient, lightest, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective heating and cooling solution in the world. Funding for a market-ready version is necessary to advance this innovation forward or completely rule it out as a viable solution to our heating and cooling needs.
By pushing the engineering envelope to the limit by recycling energy that would normally be wasted, the Ducted Vortex Heating & Cooling System will provide a green and healthier solution to an outdated HVAC industry. The specifications of the Ducted Vortex Heating and Cooling System are not limited to only this type of application. Various versions can heat and cool homes, factories, barns, warehouses, and marine vessels. It is completely scalable to any size imaginable.
Initially, we are starting with the window/wall unit assembly because it is the least expensive to perfect and most easily understood.
Scalable Technology for Future Applications – The system could potentially heat and cool warehouses, barns, homes, factories, and maybe even football coliseums. It is scalable, uses very little power, and the possibilities are endless.
Please watch the explainer video below to see how this device works and what a market-ready version will look like and can ultimately achieve. This is what will be completed with your investment funding.
An initial round of funding – $150,000-$1,000,000 – to advance this innovation into market-ready versions that can be demonstrated proving that natural phenomena(s) can be harnessed to change the lives of millions of people for the better is a small funding goal. We need $1,000,000 for the 3-year plan but could get it off the ground for $150,000 at a lower equity stake.
Initial funding efforts will be geared toward perfecting and building out multiple market-ready prototypes for live presentations, hiring grant writing professionals, opening a Ducted Vortex, Inc. facility in Jacksonville, FL, purchasing 3-D printers with rapid prototyping capabilities, hiring several key engineers assigned for specific tasks, perfecting, and implementing various parts of the device itself, and proper research into the various environments that these devices will operate.

As with any new product that enters the marketplace, safety compliance is at the forefront for US consumers. The UL stamp of approval is the goal, and it is imperative the system is designed to meet all electrical compliance standards.
Solution: Safety measures are essential in a product being introduced into the marketplace. UL’s extensive safety requirements will be met in accordance with regulations. This will be accomplished by hiring an electrical engineer that is skilled in the field of electrical engineering. We expect to have an advanced electrical schematical diagram a perfect design that passes all UL safety standards and compliance. Since the main holdup of UL approval is in the inferred remote control and we are only controlling functions and speeds, we will use an already UL-approved remote to control the operating system until the future model(s) are perfect.
The goal is to demonstrate a 6,000 BTU entry-level Ducted Vortex heating and cooling system that can operate from an energy consumption of less than ½ of anything that is existing on the market without using any fossil fuels or refrigerants. This is a daunting task, and we are confident our market-ready product will demonstrate efficiency levels in the 200W to 300W range, which is a realistic goal. There are international competitions with substantial rewards for inventors or companies that can achieve these results. It is our intention to exceed all expectations as outlined in this proposal. Our goal is 200W or less.
Solution: This will be accomplished and documented by perfecting all the parts that make the system operate in an advanced computer simulation that confirms energy consumption at full operation. We will also have a documented electrical schematic of how the entire system works.
The business model is to demonstrate market capability by providing a working prototype presented in real-time. The validation of a market-ready prototype’s potential will sell itself once introduced to the public. Since the invention will be scalable, it can be presented as a future product in compact form to potential customers. The key selling points will include cost-effectiveness, energy-saving probabilities, efficiency, practical use, reasonable maintenance, and sustainability. Aesthetically, the system will appear futuristic and pleasing to the eye, attracting marketplace value.
The commercialization approach can provide the means to enter the marketplace with a superior energy-efficient product. Once concepts are proven, the economic benefits associated with this innovation will be substantial.
Once developed, it is possible to raise millions in revenue with an entry-level working prototype. Offering the product in a creative crowdfunding platform allows the company not to be diluted early in the development phase and to maintain the company’s market share. Once the project is funded and a commercially efficient entry-level prototype is working, the expectation is to claim all additional funding opportunities available during the various phases of the project.
BUSINESS ECONOMICS AND MARKET SHARE
The market for the HVAC industry has always been solid, and heating and cooling in modern times are no longer considered a commodity but rather a necessity. The HVAC industry has seen margins steadily increase each year for decades. The air-conditioning industry could expand at an annual growth rate of approximately 6 percent based on past growth in the HVAC industry. Also, the HVAC industry could reach a market share of more than 132 billion United States dollars on a global scale.
NOISE REDUCTION WITH MOISTURE AND WEATHER STUDIES
We have taken drastic steps in the pre-design phase to eliminate unnecessary operating noise. We are already removing as much friction as possible in all parts to increase efficiency. This reduction in friction will lead directly to a reduction in noise. This will be accomplished with decibel level testing and noise reduction tests and methods. Further, we expect to conduct extensive virtual and field moisture and weather studies. Testing needs to be investigated in different environments (i.e., 110 degrees vs 30 degrees, humid air vs dry air). This can be accomplished by demonstrating various computer simulations based on various environment scenarios, then transferring the results to metal 3-D printing. By using polished aluminum for most parts and the inlet tubes being approximately 1” in diameter, it will eliminate noise to a standard level.
We are in the pre-seed stages of a new environmentally friendly startup company. Our company and product show early promise as it is unique, and novel, and the patent protection is secured for 20 years. We have a variety of investor benefits which include equity share or business loan options, an anti-dilution clause, an investor safeguard strategy, and a strategic exit plan.
All solid innovations should have long-term sustainability plans that lay out a detailed vision of the project goals. The plan moving forward with The Ducted Vortex System is to strategize and develop a well-organized business endeavor. As you look through every part of this project, it is very detailed and professionally organized. It is our intention to secure the first round of funding from a combination of angel investors and philanthropists, nationally and locally, that support environmentally friendly projects focused on renewable energy and innovative engineering that can change the world.
Small incremental steps can be made by such innovations moving into the future by starting the trend to accomplish the goal of a net-zero carbon footprint made by humanity in the HVAC sector.
After the first round of funding is secured, the immediate goal is to build out 5-10 market-ready prototypes. These prototypes will be instrumental in the success of this project. The initial cost(s) of development and manufacturing will be the most expensive because of the necessary steps to procure a perfect working model. However, once the first market-ready prototypes are completed, additional units will be made at an affordable price that is attractive to any customer base.
When working prototypes are functioning at full capacity, a nationwide tour giving potential customers and investors a first-hand look at this groundbreaking technology will be a main focal point. This will allow several options to become available, including an initial outreach to use crowdfunding sources to raise millions of dollars. This will become an easier effort with market-ready versions on full display to use on a USA tour as catalysts for investor and consumer excitement.
The news media, through television or newspaper discloser, to launch this campaign will also be a valuable resource to generate additional attraction to such a well-rounded and innovative project. Once the first units are produced applications for government grants will be professionally drafted that specifically target funds for environmental green technology projects.
A UL-approved prototype will be the goal, allowing pre-orders to be conducted to raise additional capital to move Ducted Vortex, Inc. into the future. We are instilled with confidence that once an initial round of funding is secured to produce several market-ready prototypes for funding, there will be an unlimited supply of resources available to move this exciting innovation into its first residential, commercial, and industrial applications. Once we reach the goal of the market-ready phase, we will need an additional round of funding. After that, we should be able to sustain future business endeavors without any further funding. Total commitment and full disclosure will be guaranteed as this amazing project is followed through.
EQUITY SHARE OR BUSINESS LOAN
We would be willing to accept a direct equity stake or business loan. No matter which option is preferred, we will work closely with the investor to make sure they not only receive their initial investment back but a substantial ROI as well. Once a good match is found, we can work out the funding and equity details in a nonbinding agreement that covers basic deal terms and conditions. See our Business Plan for complete details
Anti-Dilution Clause – We do not even want to consider moving backward on this project. To guard against financial losses or selling shares to other investors for a lesser cost, we will agree to an anti-dilution clause that safeguards this unlikely scenario. If a lower share price is ever offered to future investors, the angel investment will be recalculated to a lower price if this happens, providing more equity for the original investor. We expect future share prices to go up as we reach milestones.
Once an angel backs this project, our goals are the same. To make money for the investor and the company and provide the best possible product for the potential customer and consumer.
Based on the angel investors’ investment, we are willing to offer up to 20% equity stake in the company for a $,1000,000 investment. Keep in mind that the HVAC industry in the United States is a 17.45-billion-dollar industry based on 2022 statistics.
The good news is that the Dusted Vortex Heating and Cooling System has very few moving parts, making it much easier to develop than a traditional HVAC system with thousands of parts. Perfecting the first window unit for UL approval will be critical to the success of the project. Our research indicates that we can completely build out a Ducted Vortex for around $400,000. This included 5-10 additional units for presentation. $500,000 will get us through the first year and have funds left over to start a national marketing campaign. We are asking for $1,000,000 to get us through the first two years of further research and development.
With today’s technology metal 3D printing can produce an endless number of possibilities with exceptional mechanical properties and precision. Once we have the fluid mechanics and CAD files perfected, we will 3D print in-house completed prototypes for testing. Since the Ducted Vortex works by separating hot and cold air streams, it will work with any material. However, to get the most optimal performance, polished solid aluminum parts will yield the highest optimal results. Once the initial in-house prototype(s) is perfected, we will contract a high-quality direct metal printing company to create polished 3-D printed aluminum parts.
Once an electronically optimized fully functional market-ready prototype is completed, a substantial exit plan can be achieved. We already know that it will be one of the most efficient systems in the world based on preliminary tests and research. Our initial intention is to have an initial public offering around year three and create a manufacturing company in Jacksonville, Florida from the ground floor.
$1,000,000 is a substantial amount of money and our primary goal is to make sure that the investor does not lose any capital. We have so much confidence in this product, a safety clause that states after 3 years if the investor has not received their investment back, we have a system that allows the investor to exit with a return. Complete details are located in the Deal section of the business plan.
By this time, we will have created a superior business model that will break into the existing HVAC industry and are willing to risk all future patent rights for your belief in this amazing project.
